Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards is testifying before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee right now and the subject of her annual compensation was brought up by Rep. Jason Chaffetz:
Holy cow. Richards makes over $520k a year off of Planned Parenthood.

Richards: my annual compensation is $520,000 per year.

You can watch the hearing live here.
Update. Rep. Elijah Cummings says her salary is OK because of bankers … or something:
Cummings point breaks down to Cecile Richards *only* receives a $600,000 salary and bankers get more.

YAS! Elijah Cummings swipes at Chaffetz for quizzing Cecile Richards on her salary – no one quizzing the big banks, he says. #PinkOut

Cummings torching GOP for targeting Planned Parenthood but not CEOs of banks, drug cos & contractors who broke federal law.

Rep Cummings is yelling about citigroup CEO pay now. Might want to check with Hillary Clinton before going off on that.
